Converting Walthers ‘Glacier Gravel’

Walthers ‘Glacier Gravel’ kit is going to get a makeover, to make it less obviously ‘Glacier Gravel’ and morph it into ‘Overdale Quarry’.

I’ve already separated the top and bottom halves of the building. I’m going to rotate the top half through 90˚ to give a different orientation. Next, I’m cutting off one of the upper walls, to extend the building and make this side flush.

I've taken these roof pieces from another Walthers kit and I'm going to adapt it to fit this section of the building.
